Recommended Books

Slice of Life Day 30

Before break, my students and I finished two books in a series that I was recommended by our LRC assistant. We were hooked! We waited everyday for our read aloud time to get lost in the character’s story. We loved the days we had a double read aloud day just because we had to know what was going to happen next! I would highly recommend Front Desk and Three Keys.

With having finished these two books I was in search of another recommendation and I knew she wouldn’t steer us wrong! This time we went for a spooky story that is set in Chicago and the main character is an artist. My 4th graders are big into scary, huge into art, and we just discussed a lot about Chicago with our Illinois unit. Win-win-win!

I started reading this book and I am hooked, again! It is chilling. It is suspenseful. I cannot put it down! It is the kind of scary that the author’s words gives me chills and goosebumps right along with the characters. I should be able to finish it tonight and the anticipation is killing me! Even without knowing the ending, I would highly recommend The Peculiar Incident on Shady Street. Hopefully the characters, and I, are able to survive the ending. Thanks for another great recommendation!

  1. This was on the IL Reads list for our IRC Book Club class. I haven’t read it yet, but now I’m looking forward to it! Let me
    know if you think it’s age-appropriate for 6th graders.
